Replying to my own post... I also tried clearing the data for My Gallery app, and now My Library will open. However, as others have mentioned, changing to Albums view causes the error and force close. After that, data must be cleared again to open My Library. Kinda sucks cause I prefer the Albums view. Looking forward to that rumored patch in the works.
As a side note, I turned off "Display friends' activities" in My Gallery settings cause I don't need to see that every time I open My Gallery... but when I open My Library, it very briefly and inexplicably shows a recent social media post (ie. an image from a facebook friend's wall post) before it successfully loads My Library. Awesome programming. Maybe this should be patched too? Maybe its part of the problem even?
Unfortunately, I have a Droid 4 and got the ICS update this morning which ruined my phone... lost contacts, blah blah blah...some of it I have fixed but My Gallery has completely stopped working and won't even open... I have performed all of the recommended suggestions on this page but nothing is working... any other suggestions?? I'm soooooooooooooo freakin frustrated!!! PLEASE HELP!
I would do an fdr... that's your best bet.. there's supposed to be a software update soon... it may help.

After switching to ics you should do an FDR. Give the OS a day to settle in, then do an fdr... it will smooth out most of the wrinkles..
Thank you, had the same issue. I was afraid when clearing data my photos would disappear, but they did not and now the program works again.
As much as we all dont like to do it..I have to agree that a FDR is the best choice after a GB to ICS upgrade..was having all the same issues everyone has posted..my camera didn't even work...after a FDR..all good and after .215..phone has been great..especially battery life on my maxx
My Gallery is a data hog, I would ditch that puppy and get Quickpic from the Store ... it's free, and much better than "My Gallery" :)
Remove MicroSD card>open gallery>insert card with gallery open>click on camera roll and let thumbnails populate>back>my library and let populate>back>leave the app and return. Worked for me on Purple Razr & Razr Maxx.
how do u do an fdr???please help i updated my ainol novo7aurora to ics 4.0.4 and the camera wont work now . can you please tell me how to carry out an FDR
